About Ballyknocken House


Ballyknocken House & Cookery School is scenically located on a 280-acre farm only 29 miles from Dublin City Centre in County Wicklow, Ireland. Our charming farm guesthouse offers welcoming Bed & Breakfast with 4 star Victorian style accommodation and is home to celebrity chef and award winning food writer, Catherine Fulvio  who prides herself on continuing the family tradition of hospitality. We are proud to be one of the first Irish Farmhouse B&Bs and the romance and charm of this period house is reflected in the decor of the accommodation.
